“To care for your body, eat nutritious food.” – For the Strength of Youth
I, ____________________, commit eat nutritious food today and until August 23.
“And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man—
Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving.
Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;
And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine.
All grain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life, not only for man but for the beasts of the field, and the fowls of heaven, and all wild animals that run or creep on the earth;
And these hath God made for the use of man only in times of famine and excess of hunger.
All grain is good for the food of man; as also the fruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground” – Doctrine and Covenants 89:10-16

It shows how to calculate how much of what you should eat each day, and includes a BMI calculator. Use it to find out how many servings of each food category to have. I’ve written down my findings on a sticky note so that I can see it more. (Note: as mentioned in the starting post, not everything works for everyone. These are suggestions.)
